Wake to the sounds of the ocean…
The sublime Shalimar Estate comprises of three separate beachfront villas: Villa Cantik, Villa Makanda and Villa Kalima. With 6 bedrooms – the beautiful Villa Kalima is the largest of the three.
The beautiful abodes sit in a row facing out over the Indian Ocean on a stretch of beach which is perfect for surfing and beach play. They are approached through a grand entrance overlooked by the protection of a large stone Buddha.
The beauty of the vast living space at Villa Kalima is that it is fully open to the 20 metre swimming pool and landscaped lawn dotted with coconut and frangipani trees, making no distinction between the wondrous outdoors and the social hub of the house. The pool itself has plenty of sunbeds and incorporates submerged loungers creating a perfect spot for cooling off in the heat of the day.
Under the eaves of the two storey building are two massive L shaped sofas with spectacular views over the garden and down towards the beach. An ideal place to sit back and watch the children play. Moving further back into the body of the house is a formal 12 seater dining table and a contemporary fitted kitchen all cooled by swooping ceiling fans. Here you can enjoy the complimentary breakfast and chose other meals from a suggested in-house menu which features Asian and Western favourites as well as healthy options and children’s choices. A further commercial kitchen for food preparation is located at the front of the villa complex so as staff impinge as little as possible during meal service times. Additionally, there is another sofa at the rear which faces onto a Satellite TV with DVD player and Wi-Fi is available throughout.
The family accommodation is spread over the three floors of the building. Each of the six generous rooms are fully air-conditioned and feature safety deposit boxes and ensuite bathrooms. On the ground floor, either side of the living area are two extensive master suites with king size beds surrounded by elegant canopy drapes. These have exquisite views over the garden and spacious ensuites with oversized spa-style baths, separate rainfall showers and double vanity units.

These also feature huge bathrooms with large baths and lovely views with blinds for privacy. Beneath the living quarters are a further two bedrooms with ensuites, these are less grand than the other rooms but still perfectly comfortable.
